Author Customization



Author Customization gives you much more flexibility in managing post and page author data. Your author data will no longer be tied solely to the WordPress user system, and can now be managed on a per-post basis. Author name and description are saved with each post, allowing you to preserve this information as it was when the post was published.


  • Per-post author display name and biographical info
  • TinyMCE (WYSIWYG) editor for user profile and per-post biographical info
  • rel=nofollow link inside biographical info entries



  1. Upload the author-customization directory to the wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  3. Adjust the settings on the Author Custom Settings page


The post authors display name and biographical info are copied from their user profile.

Yes. The plugin saves author info to each post you edit whether or not youve enabled displaying author data from the post metadata. If you decide later that you want per-post author information to be displayed, any post youve created or edited since installing the plugin will already be set up to do this.

Not at the moment.

In order for author information to appear on your posts and pages, the theme youre using must have support for this. If it does, you should see your author info changes without issue. If you know it shows author information but youre not seeing the changes you made using this plugin, pop over to the Support area. If your theme does not have support for author info, contact the theme developer.
